Re: Appendix N X-plorers

Sweet. Will it be compatible with vanilla (whatever that is) DCC RPG? I'd be curious how you take on Mighty Deeds , Fumbles and Crits.

But looking forward to some ray-guns and interplanetary space travel.

Re: Deed actions that would insta-kill an enemy

If I remember correctly the rules mention that Mighty Deeds can not be used to cause greater damage to an enemy. In this case the deed is not about killing the enemy, but pushing. It's not the deed what kills him, but the environment. It really depends on the group. You don't want it to get too che...

Re: Stereotype Rules

I also have always preferred the 'got swept away to a fantasy world' to the 'born and raised in a fantasy world' storyline. To me, having the characters be from the fantasy world sort of takes the fantastic and makes it mundane. Transporting them there from the real world makes everything fantastic...

I love the concept of this, even through it doesn't fit the traditional fantasy setting. Love the chart and the fact that it can help generate some characters with real personality.

Re: DCC Boxed Set

It wasn't designed to be, and it didn't stay that way. Painting it as such is just incorrect. Just because it was your first intro to the game, doesn't mean that's where it was designed. Nope, sorry, I showed you a direct quote from the 1977 D&D rulebook, which explicitly states that it is a "basic...

Re: DCC Boxed Set

Uh...except for one problem. The edition that became "Basic" D&D was already designed by that point. The 1977 edition was little more than a rules clean up and re-editing. It was never DESIGNED to be a gateway game when it was created. Just because they later created an Advanced version, doesn't me...

Re: DCC Boxed Set

Is DCC for beginners or those who have never played? It doesn't seem so. In the end it's their game, so they can do what they wish, I just stated it wouldn't be something I would buy, and I'd rather have supplements and modules. Sorry.

I have been playing D&D since 1978 when I was introduced to it in middle school. I started with Holmes Basic and spent most of the '80s playing AD&D. I stopped playing D&D after 2e came out. I spend the next ten years or so playing GURPS. When 3e came out in 2000, I started playing D&D again. I don...

Re: Converting 3rd edition Skills and Feats to DCC RPG

Keep the PCs the same. Don't convert them. Convert the rest on the fly. For combat, since NPCs and Monsters don't play by the same rules they could easily have "unique" abilities that mechanically function just like 3e Feats. Use their stats AS-IS, it'll be fine. Wing the feats if you dont' have the...

Re: Durability and Power: comparing Normal Man vs DCC Charac

TheNobleDrake's thinking that 3rd is about right. 4th, for sure. Due to the swingy nature of DCC RPG, a 1st-Level Warrior is about 1d3 as powerful as a 1st-level 0e D&D Figher. By 6th level they're Super-heroes, and should be the right-hand man of kings, and lords or barons of their own domains. Or ...

I think DCC RPG could use a good "Basic Set", I've mentioned it a few times before (here and G+). It could go until 3rd level. Hell, my campaign of 1.5 years has only 1 (one) 3rd level character, everyone else are from 0 to 2. It would only need the more popular 1st (maybe 10-15 of them) and 2nd lev...

We're talking about Carcosa, not the game LotFP.
